Membership FAQ

1. What is Omega membership?

When you choose to support Omega’s nonprofit work on a regular basis — with a gift of $10 (or more) a month — you join a community of people who believe in our mission and want to help us reach more people beyond geographic and financial barriers. In return, you gain unprecedented access to content and course offerings on our website, and additional discounts and perks that demonstrate our gratitude for your support.

2. How does becoming a member help support Omega?

Monthly membership gifts provide the kind of consistent, reliable support that is critical to ensuring Omega’s long-term sustainability as a nonprofit organization. Your tax-deductible donation fuels every aspect of our work, including offering more scholarships, expanding our online resources, fostering community engagement, and so much more.

3. What benefits will I receive as an Omega member?

Omega members enjoy all of the following benefits and more.



  • Tuition discounts on most workshops, conferences, and online courses (see all event descriptions).
  • Savings on most services and products offered at the Omega Wellness Center and 10% off most purchases at the Store, and Café.
  • Monthly member newsletter, early notification about popular workshops and invitations to special events.
  • One free online course (live-stream or on-demand) of your choice each year.
  • 24/7 online access to an expanding array of articles, videos, talks, and 40 years of wisdom from our archive. 
  • Ability to save your favorite resources to your personal library.

4. I already donate to Omega, am I a member?

Anyone who donates $10 or more on a monthly basis ($120 or more on an annual basis) is already a member and entitled to all the benefits membership confers. If you’re not sure, you can double-check your profile

If you currently donate less than $10 per month ($120 per year), we hope you will consider increasing your gift and becoming a member. We’re here to help you do this if you have questions.
